ESPN: Cabrera's 'Melkmen' are alive in San Fran

They saw a "Got Melk?" sign in the stands (a remnant from Cabrera’s days as a Yankee when he was dubbed "The Melkman") and it sparked an idea. They started talking, and soon they’d decided to dress up like "Melkmen" and go to a Giants game. "It snowballed all the way into an outfit," says Huffman. "It was really organic between all of us." ... They came up with an outfit idea, ordering the bow ties online and making their hats. Their shirts and pants (except for being white) don’t actually match. "Really, it was like an arts-and-crafts project," says Huffman, a journalism major at San Jose State. ... When Cabrera gets a hit, the crew does "the Melkshake" -- a dance patterned after "The Bernie." "It has a shaking movement, so naturally the Melkshake just became the name of it," Tyler says.
